TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel El Viandante Monteverde
If you're a fan of staying at family-run establishments, this is about as good as it gets. Simple but comfortable and spacious rooms, and conveniently located to the area's attractions. The owners were lovely, and extremely helpful with booking tours, answering questions about the area, and recommeding restaurants. There's a great atmosphere in the hotel, with their cute kids occasionally hanging around, making for an experience that is far more rewarding than what you would find at a larger, impersonal establishment. Breakfast is nice - made to order, and changing daily. The hotel has recently started restaurant service, and is convenient for a quick lunch between activities. The restaurant/breakfast room is a lovely spot to relax after the days activities, with beautiful views over the area - a beer and their tasty fresh-made tortilla chips with guacamole and pico de gallo is the perfect way to end a day in Monteverde.

Apparantly one particular zipline is the longest in latin america, stretching over 1500m! Ziplining high above valleys, over the rainforest, through trees was ...
... fascinated by the Katydid which was an insect that had a strange way of disguising itself from predators. Unless looking specifically for a Katydid would be easy to miss as it looks exactly the same as a leaf, it even has imperfections like dying leaves to make it look less obvious. As our night in the forest came to an end so did our time in Costa Rica. One more night and we would be heading back to San Jose for our flight back to the ...
... you know coffee beans are actually inside of these red berries? And the actual coffee bean only accounts for 20% of the total berry? And they are not brown. The brownness happens when they are roasted. Not only did we learn about coffee, but also cocoa and sugar cane. *DO NOT EAT STRAIGHT UP COCOA BEANS* It's like eating a spoon full of unsweetened cocoa powder but solid form. However, the sugar cane juice was delicious! Our tour guide, Junior, was ...
